timeless love …

​our eyes mask many a sorrow,

torn hopes, bygone dreams,

lost in the folds of ceaseless time,

whispered murmurs, ebbing in the tide of tepid rhyme …

… but,

have these disjointed verses bound us through painful tears,

as we held each other close,

through the travails of the years,

our wrinkled faces smiling,

as the end nears.
